Article by George Norman

Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has recently announced that it added a new app to the library of Bing Maps applications. The new app I am talking about is called Teach Here; this Bing Maps app has been developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education to provide an easy means of searching for teacher prep programs, teaching-related scholarships, certification offices, and local job opportunities.

If you are a veteran teacher or think about going into teaching, the Bing Maps app Teach Here will help you easily search for teacher prep programs, state teaching certification offices, school district headquarters, and local teaching jobs.

“A great education depends heavily on having great teachers, and this application represents a first for Bing maps in terms of collaboration with the Dept. of Education and an opportunity to show what mapping technologies can do to help teacher recruitment and support the teaching profession. We had offered them access to Bing Maps data for use in their site, which you will see on teach.gov, but we wanted to do more than that,” commented Bing Senior Program Manager, Betsy Aoki.

The new Bing Maps app Teach Here has been launched in conjunction with a new U.S. teacher resource teach.gov.

“Despite the recession, there are thousands of teaching positions available each year and it’s important to encourage smart, innovative folks to this societally pivotal career,” added Aoki.

Please note that Microsoft Silverlight is needed for the app to work.
